    The negative 20th century Hello will be remembered as a mistake, and as a deliberate attempt to disguise the negative grammatical connotation that is blatantly associated with the "greeting!" If our NATION'S PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE would read, "One Nation Under Satan!", then maybe "HellO" would deserve some measure of merit. But the fact is, that our Nation's Pledge reads very clearly, "One Nation Under God!"

    This new greeting, "HeavenO", is meant to convey and inspire a positive environment among our children, and one another. The 21st Century deserves a New Awareness..HeavenO! I am not promoting Christianity or any religion. This is an effort to bring about a positive greeting awareness amongst the general population. I believe my mission has been accomplished! Thank you once again for your kind and supportive words! 🙄

    Here's an entry from an online etymology of the word, hello:

    "1883, alt. of hallo (1840), itself an alt. of holla, hollo, a shout to attract attention, first recorded 1588. Perhaps from holla! "stop, cease." Popularity as a greeting coincides with use of the telephone, where it won out over Alexander Graham Bell's suggestion, ahoy. Central telephone exchange operators were known as hello-girls (1889)."

    it didn't before 1954

    lol and it was written by a Baptist Minister who had been pressured into leaving his church in 1891 because of his socialist sermons. In his retirement in Florida, he stopped attending church because he disliked the racial bigotry he found there.

    "Hello-girls" sound really sexy.

    I thought it was used for girls who 'you had at hello'.
